Fernando Muslera and Felipe Melo will finish the new transfer of Galatasaray

Galatasaray will continue the great transfer attack it made at the beginning of the season. Roma’s 24 pointer Matias Vina is being considered to replace Dutch left-back Patrick van Aanholt, who appears to be the ‘weakest link’.

Cimbom went through a major renewal in his squad after finishing 13th last season.

The Yellow-Reds started a great transfer operation under the leadership of President Dursun Özbek and Erden Timur, Deputy Chairman of Sportif AŞ, and equipped the staff with stars such as Mauro Icardi, Dries Mertens, Haris Seferovic, Yusuf Demir, Juan Mata, Milot Rashica.

With 7 weeks behind in the Super League, the only problem seems to be in the left-back position. Patrick van Aanholt was well below the level of the team. Kazımcan Karataş, who came from Altay, has not been able to take the form from the Dutch left-back at the moment. Reinforcement is considered here.


The name that yellow and red people want to associate with their colors is Matias Vina. A meeting was held with the 24-year-old football player at the beginning of the season, but when negotiations with Roma did not progress, his transfer was shelved.

During this period, the transfer of Patrick van Aanholt and Kazımcam Karataş was on the agenda again because they could not improve their performance. Buruk wanted the Uruguayan left-back to join the squad as soon as the January transfer window opened.

As the end of the first period approaches, the management will sit at the negotiation table again with the Italian representative. Roma wants 5 million euros for Vina, which is his testimonial until 2016.


Matias Vina, who is on Aslan’s radar, played for Nacional, Palmeiras and Roma in his career. Young left-back blew up the opponent’s nets 10 times in 156 matches. 18 assists. He was punished with a yellow card for a total of 28 times, and was expelled once by seeing a red card.


The biggest feature of Matias Vina on Galatasaray’s agenda is its dynamism. The 24-year-old football player, who is a great athlete, has high running quality. His dribbles, dribbles, passes and crosses are top notch. Since he is taller than an average winger, he is also effective in air balls. He has a daunting structure that does not give up easily in double struggles.


With Matias Vina’s name being mentioned again with Galatasaray, two important names came into play. Captain Fernando Muslera will hold a briefing with Vina, who is also his friend from the National Team. Felipe Melo, who is also a Galatasaray legend, and Palmeiras will meet with the young left-back he played with. He will convey his positive experiences in order to make his career choice in favor of Cimbom.

Aslan wants to get comfortable in the left-back position for a long time by taking Vina with his testimonial.
